Our room was large and comfortable. But we arrived the night before Hurricane Arthur, so had only experienced one night out of four with electricity and a hot shower. Nevertheless, our hosts were game for the challenge and were still able to offer us tasty breakfasts, by candlelight no less! The hosts, Paul and Val, had to work extra-hard, cooking on the barbie and washing up by hand. They were hugely apologetic for something beyond their control and arranged to have us stay at another B&B with power for our fourth night. We visited the Annapolis Royal Fort (there's so much history in this small place!) and by the time we were to leave for the other B&B, the power came back on. . . so we returned to Hillside House, walked through the front door and shouted to Paul, "We're baaaaaack!"
